MILESTONES

NOTE: This is the first poll where teams from the Big Ten, Pac-12, MAC, and Mountain West conferences were ineligible to receive votes since they are not playing at the time of the poll. This has affected many appearance and streak numbers. How this unusual interruption will be notated in the future will depend on when or if those conferences play games, and how the AP handles any polls if they do play. Until then, I'm going to treat them at face value (subject to sudden change), i.e., no asterisks at this point.

Last Appearances:
- Army makes first appearance in the Top 25 since the final 2018 poll (18 polls)
- BYU makes first appearance in the Top 25 since the 9/23/2018 poll (29 polls)
- Florida makes first appearance in the Top 5 since the 12/2/2012 poll (117 polls)
- Kentucky makes first appearance in the Top 25 since the final 2018 poll (18 polls)
- Louisiana makes first appearance in the Top 25 since the 11/1/1943 poll (1109 polls)
- Louisville makes first appearance in the Top 25 since the 10/1/2017 poll (44 polls)
- Miami (FL) makes first appearance in the Top 25 since the 10/7/2018 poll (27 polls)
- Pittsburgh makes first appearance in the Top 25 since the 11/18/2018 poll (21 polls)
- Texas makes first appearance in the Top 10 since the 9/3/2019 poll (16 polls)
- Texas A&M makes first appearance in the Top 10 since the 11/6/2016 poll (55 polls)

Weekly Streaks:
- Florida's Top 25 streak reaches 30
- Iowa's Top 25 streak ends at 19
- LSU's Top 10 streak reaches 20, Top 25 streak reaches 40
- Michigan's Top 25 streak ends at 34
- Minnesota's Top 25 streak ends at 11
- Ohio State's Top 5 streak ends at 14, Top 10 streak ends at 25, Top 25 streak ends at 132
- Oregon's Top 25 streak ends at 18
- Penn State's Top 25 streak ends at 58
- Utah's Top 25 streak ends at 18
- Wisconsin's Top 25 streak ends at 18

Total Appearances:
- Alabama reaches 810 appearances (#5)
- Appalachian State ties three others and reaches 10 appearances (#114)
- Cincinnati ties two others for #70
- Clemson ties two others for #18
- Memphis ties Villanova for #96
- Texas A&M ties two others for #18
- UCF ties three others for #77

Miscellaneous:
- The SEC's six teams in the Top 10 are the most ever for one conference. If you count independents, there have been several polls with six to eight teams ranked in the Top 10, the last being the 11/12/1945 poll.
